    I am sure you love it, everyone seems to love manchester!!!!! its a great place
    Haha i'd like to go catered but i'm veggie so not sure if the food would be a bit rubbish.
    Yeah, i can't wait now!
    You local to Manchester?

    I've read that the veggie option from the catered isn't bad.
    But nothing beats cooking yourself I guess!

    AAA and chose it since imperial were antisocial enough to offer 3 A*s and also the third year in industry looks like a sweet deal
    Accomodation wise it'll have to be Fallowfield, leaving me with a choice between OP OH and richmond

    im thinking of putting Whitworth park as a preference in september and am a bit curious as to how the single sex areas work. My boyfriend would come to stay for a day or two with me when i start at uni, but would he be allowed to stay with me in a single sex flat?
    And is the same in other accommodation?

    Ahh i see then. probably going to be cheaper to cook yourself as well.
    Honestly, i dont know how ashburne's gonna be as its relatively small and theres a decent number of postgrads. wonder how fun'll it be.

    Awesome . Sheavyn looks quite nice, but it's kinda expensive. I think it shares it's freshers week with Ashburne but i'm not too sure!

    I can't say for certain, but based on experience of single sex areas of accomodation in other universities that'd be no ******* whatsoever. Yeah, you'll be put in a flat with people your own sex, but it's not as though they'll stop guys from coming in, it's not a boarding school.

    I did not have an interview. I got 3A* 6As and a couple of Bs in GCSE. Don't worry about GCSE's tbh.......i dont think they care much abt gcse's.......as long as you have a good personal statement, a good reference and meet thier minimum requirements.....you should be offered a place.
